Etymology: deruptotalea: Derived from Latin deruptus, meaning broken, and talea, signifying bars, in reference to the presence of broken color bars on the sides of the body. A noun in apposition.

Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 14 - 15;
Vertebrae: 35. Devario deruptotalea can be diagnosed from its congeners in the Chindwin drainage in having the following combination of characters: complete lateral line with 32-34 pored scales; unique color pattern consisting of 4-6 dark brown irregularly shaped and arranged bars, each of which is partly confluent with adjacent bar at different levels on anterior one-third of side of body, followed by three distinct dark brown stripes posteriorly; darker P stripe, about twice as broad as other stripes and extending onto median caudal-fin rays; blackish stripe on dorsal fin; series of 3-6 yellowish patches formed along path of I-1 by P and P-1 stripes (Ref. 96522). Note: see Fang 1997 (Ref. 13396:290-291) for description of stripes and interspaces.
The type locality is characterized by clear, shallow, fast running water with about 0.05 m to 1.5 m depth (during the month of March) and bottom consisting of cobbles, sand and a meager amount of mud with rich algal growth. Collected together with Barilius ngawa, Channa gachua, Garra paralissorhynchus, Garra sp., Glyptothorax ventrolineatus, Mastacembelus armatus, Neolissochilus stracheyi, Poropuntius burtoni and Schistura reticulata (Ref. 96522).
